Breast Cancer Awareness Month is here, and with that comes a slew of brands who want to help the cause, donating profits and making pretty pink products that will entice us all to buy up and in turn, aid breast cancer awareness.
Of course, some of these pretty pink products are prettier than others, and I’ve searched down my top three, in an attempt to persuade you to run out and grab some.
Nails Inc "Paint Your Pinkie Pink"
My favourite Sugababe Heidi Range, has paired up with Nails inc. in order to aid the Breast Cancer Campaign. They have joined up in to bring a little social media to the Breast Cancer campaign and to encourage both women and men to ‘paint your pinkie pink’ to raise awareness and funds.
Celebrities, customers and staff will all be encouraged to Paint your Pinkie Pink and Jessie J, Russell Brand and Matthew Williamson have all agreed to join the campaign. The nail moguls have released a limited edition pink nail glitter Pinkie Pink that is available to buy now for £11.
£1 from all sales will be donated. Nails Inc have a fundraising target of £50,000 to donate to the charity. You can get involved: Paint your Pinkie Pink for Breast Cancer Campaign and then simply tweet @nailsinc and tag your picture with #Pinkiepink.
Origins' "This Makes a Difference"
I love this little gift from Origins. The This Make a Difference set contains limited edition handbag sized version of two Origins classics - Make A Difference, a hand cream, and the Peace Of Mind treatment which is apparently stress relieving, I’ll take four! £2 from each sale goes towards The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in Britain. This is a great chance to try out some new products and help charity, which definitely makes it silly not to purchase, right?
The Evelyn Lauder Dream Collection
Last but not least on my list is a very poignant campaign this year following the sad death of Evelyn Lauder. The Estee Lauder company have designed a collection in her honour, named The Evelyn Lauder Dream Collection. The Evelyn Lauder Dream Collection 2012 was designed by Evelyn to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.
This year's Estee Lauder Breast Cancer pin is really lovely, and even features a little blue diamante. The blue is to represent the 1% of breast cancer cases in the United States that are diagnosed in men.
It costs £10 and the entire price will be given to the Breast Cancer Awareness fund, which is pretty rare and totally amazing.
